Lewis Capaldi is “terrified” about people seeing a new “raw and honest” documentary all about the musician, though he’s also “really proud” of it.

‘Lewis Capaldi: How I’m Feeling Now’ has been made by BMG, Pulse Films and Netflix, with the latter set to be make it available on 5 Apr, ahead of the May release of Capaldi’s second album ‘Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent’.

“This all-access film sees Lewis Capaldi at a pivotal moment in his career”, says the blurb. “At the heart of this film is the story of a young artist, returning to his roots after achieving unbelievable global success, attempting to reconnect with his old life and the family and friends he left behind”.

“The film captures Capaldi’s defining year, struggling to balance the familiarity of home, normality and all he’s ever known, with life as one of the biggest stars on the planet”, it goes on, “gleaning an intimate portrait of his unique character, hopes and fears in his own words”.

Commenting on the doc, Sam Bridger at Pulse Films says: “This started out as a film about the process of creating the ‘difficult second album’, but ended up being an astonishingly unguarded portrait of the pressures of fame on young shoulders, exploring one of the great conversations of our age – mental health”.

“Such unfiltered access to one of the biggest stars on the planet is testament to the bravery of Lewis and his team who invited us into their world”, he adds, “and the incredible trust and storytelling instincts of director Joe Pearlman, producer Alice Rhodes and the production team”.

Capaldi himself, meanwhile, says: “I’m pretty terrified for people to see this documentary if I’m quite honest, but I’m also really proud of it. I hope you enjoy it”.
